Faculty Senate

The Faculty Senate is the principal faculty advisory body to the President, the Provost and Executive Vice President, and the university’s administration.  Although the Faculty Senate is not structurally a part of the Office of the Provost and Executive Vice President, the responsibilities of shared governance require a strong and collaborative relationship.

The Faculty Senate and the Office of the Provost work together through University Committees, through projects such as revisions to the Faculty Handbook, and through actions brought to the Faculty Senate that provide advice and guidance to the administration on behalf of the General Faculty.
